The New Addition

The Frugal Friendzies have some BIG news for this month: A new little friendzie is on the way! I (Adele) am almost 11 weeks pregnant, and now on the hunt for some baby-related frugal finds of my own. Recently, I scored some great finds at a local consignment shoppe. My challenge is that we aren't planning to find out the gender of the baby, so the stuff I purchase generally has to be gender-neutral. That's why I've started shopping early! Also a challenge will be finding adequate maternity wear. My goal is to find as much as possible from second-hand sources....and we'll just have to play it by ear based on what I find. Thankfully, two friends of mine have passed on all of their maternity wear, so if it all fits, I should be mostly set! Can't beat freebies! ;)

Now, here's this month's finds:

Here we have a 3-piece Carter's ensemble. Got it on *sale* for $4.49. And this was the most expensive baby buy of the day! Practically brand new condition as well.

Here's a close-up of the froggies on the above outfit. I just love frogs!

Carter's onesie for $2.24 (on *sale* also!). It's light green with a little teddy bear on the front.

Light yellow Carter's onesie for $2.59. Has two teddies hugging on the front.

These are little Carters pants that came with one of the onesies above, but I thought they could go with a couple different outfits. They have little yellow and green bears and animals on them.

This Carters outfit was just $2.63. And for being white and yellow, there's not a stain or mark on it!

The front of the above outfit. *cuteness*

And yet another Carters outfit. This one was $3.59. It's white and light green with giraffes.

Here's the close-up of the giraffe above.

And finally, the cute cute CUTE little slippers I found for $1.99 and $2.59. If you can't tell, one pair is duckies and the other is bunnies. 

Now we just need the baby to get here to model all these adorable (and frugal!) finds! At least I know my baby can be well dressed on a dime.

Jacklyn's Sweet Find

A friend of mine (Adele), Jacklyn, recently emailed an AWESOME furniture find from a local PA thrift store. Here's the pic:
Found at Blue Mountain Thrift Store, Cleona, PA
This brown leather sofa retails for around $2000. Jacklyn picked it up for a mere $450!! (Purse not included ;-)) She tells us it is in "new" condition -- no scratches or marks. The best part? It's a sleeper sofa! AND, the mattress was still in the original plastic wrap! What a fabulous deal! The Frugal Friendzies are a little bit jealous.

Keep your finds coming, fellow thrifters!
